Freddy Starr is going to be on This Morning

(57 Posts)

Talking about allegations towards him, following the JS scandal.

annh Wed 10-Oct-12 10:32:47

Do you know what time he will be on at as I really need to go shower but also want to know what he has to say for himself?

Sorry, I misused the bit where they show you the times.

Ah, seen it. 10:50am.

YouOldSlag Wed 10-Oct-12 10:42:14

I have no sympathy for this man. He has clearly lied and been caught out. And then his fiancee complains his poor heart is giving him trouble what with all the stress.

Eek. This could be a mistake.

annh Wed 10-Oct-12 10:45:49

Thank you, will put off the shower. I can't believe he was so stupid as to outright lie about his whereabouts, did it never occur to him that his presence was filmed at the BBC????? Will find it difficult to believe anything he says.

Ugh, just seen the preview, disgusting wheezy old man. I can't believe TM, I wonder how much money he is getting for this?
Surely if there is a police investigation he shouldn't be doing this?

He does not come across well. And I don't see how bringing the very young fiancé will his case.

MrsjREwing Wed 10-Oct-12 10:49:41

He should watch his posture if he is worried about his bypass, on now.

LineRunner Wed 10-Oct-12 10:49:43

Toughasoldboots, good point. What about the police investigation?

This will do him more harm than good, I suspect.

Well I know who I believe.

And she can keep out of it too, she wasn't even conceived then.

I know. I just don't understand why she's there.

YouOldSlag Wed 10-Oct-12 10:53:55

Looks like we all agree on this one! You've all said what I was thinking.

Ooh, think he slipped up there re further allegations.

wintera Wed 10-Oct-12 10:54:40

What has he actually been accused of doing does anyone know? I saw the lady in question on channel four news the other night and she said something like 'I was sexually humiliated by Freddie Starr' so that made me think it was something different than rape or abuse as she would have said 'sexually assaulted' instead surely? Sorry to be a pest, I was just wondering if anyone could clarify really.

alienreflux Wed 10-Oct-12 10:54:48

state of him,he's hideous. guilty or not he looks horrible.
what the hell does she see in him?

I don't think he'd pass the Jeremy Kyle lie detector test.

alienreflux Wed 10-Oct-12 10:55:54

think he grabbed her boob, then humiliated her when she rebuffed him by saying she had tiny boobs sad

Haemadoots Wed 10-Oct-12 10:55:55

I think this is going to be far bigger than just jimmy saville unfortunately

alienreflux Wed 10-Oct-12 10:56:47

how old is she???

LottieJenkins Wed 10-Oct-12 10:56:50

Its funny how he can remember some things ie going to nightclub after TOTP but cannot remember other things!!!hmm

TheFlumpsHaveEyes Wed 10-Oct-12 10:57:14

wintera isn't it 'alleged' that he was the third person of the 'three well known celebrities' who abused young teen girls together (the other two being Jimmy Savile and Gary Glitter)...

She said he had a bad case of wandering hands, then humiliated her by saying she had very small breasts, in front of people.

YouOldSlag Wed 10-Oct-12 10:57:28

wintera, I read somewhere that he tried it on with her and she said no and he insulted her calling her a "t*tless wonder" in front of others. Really rank behaviour. I think it might have the Mailonline or something? can't remember now.

I think she's 35.

PaisleyPumpkin Wed 10-Oct-12 10:57:38

What did she just say about her being in a vulnerable place when she got with Freddie?

alienreflux Wed 10-Oct-12 10:57:55

if she's lying, why doesn't he sue? come on phil get stuck in??!!

wintera Wed 10-Oct-12 10:58:34

And was she 14 at the time or something as well? Dirty sod.

LottieJenkins Wed 10-Oct-12 10:58:47

If he wants to talk to the police, he should walk into the police station and make a statement!!!

alienreflux Wed 10-Oct-12 10:59:37

the thought of three middle aged men, given carte blanche to young girls turns my stomach.
yes, the vulnerable place thing was a bit jarring too

It's uncomfortable viewing, isn't it?

YouOldSlag Wed 10-Oct-12 11:00:18

Yes, the complainant was 14 at the time. FS said he had never met her, only met JS twice, and had never even been on the show.

Next day, there's a photo of him on the show, presented by JS, standing next to his victim.

I've got the shivers now.

DesperatelySeekingSedatives Wed 10-Oct-12 11:02:58

Lying through his teeth the dirty old git. He's been well and truly caught out. Why the hell did anyone think going on national tv to tell "his side" was a good idea?! I bet more stuff comes out about him!

wintera Wed 10-Oct-12 11:03:53

Just thinking about my nieces who are both lovely young girls, very pretty, and if someone humiliated them like that, I would swing for him I tell you.

LineRunner Wed 10-Oct-12 11:04:12

I dear I just missed it all.

Did he acquit himself well?

LineRunner Wed 10-Oct-12 11:05:03

Oh, I guess not.

annh Wed 10-Oct-12 11:07:41

Well, he was very categorical about never having groped a woman in her life so if he has ever abused anyone else and that person comes forward, he is done for! I think there was a collective nationwide intake of breath when his fiancee said that when she met him she was in a very vulnerable position and he was a perfect gentleman.

threepiecesuite Wed 10-Oct-12 11:07:50

Ugh, that end bit. "If I collapse and die of a heart attack today, at least I'll know I was innocent". Very, very awkward.

DesperatelySeekingSedatives Wed 10-Oct-12 11:10:12

Yeah that bit about collapsing and dying was a bit I dont know, yuck? I actually feel sick now.

MrsjREwing Wed 10-Oct-12 11:13:16

I think he would have helped his heart not putting it through the stress of a live TV interview about sex abuse allegations, until he got all clear from hospital.

He has always made me feel in need of a bleach bath, I think it's because he resembles a toad. He does ooze sleaze. He always has that affect on me, regardless of why he's on tv, so I can't tell how sincere he was just now. I am entirely prejudiced.

alienreflux Wed 10-Oct-12 11:17:13

that bloody shirt can't have helped his heart!! he looked like he was about to 'do a hulk' urgh

A bit ridiculous saying you've never groped a woman in your life.

I'd be gutted if DP never groped me!

lia66 Wed 10-Oct-12 11:27:38

can i watch this on something? I missed it

MrsjREwing Wed 10-Oct-12 11:28:19

ITV plus one

Viviennemary Wed 10-Oct-12 11:33:00

I don't think it is very wise of him to appear on This Morning. Or very wise of ITV to have him. Whatever the truth is.

LineRunner Wed 10-Oct-12 13:16:46

Who on earth suggested he give that interview? Does he not have a lawyer?

AnyaKnowIt Wed 10-Oct-12 13:23:46

I was not convince of the 'poor old frail me' routine. Considering that last week he was on stage saying that the woman was a 'nutter' and he was going to take her to the cleaners.

Can't believe they hired a PI!

YouOldSlag Wed 10-Oct-12 16:14:18

I see from the photos in the paper that after playing the martyr and saying the stress is going to give him a heart attack, he has a fag in his hand on the way to the hospital.

he'll probably blame the media for making him smoke too.

Mrsjay Wed 10-Oct-12 20:17:00

ok he isn't interested in young girls women yet his girlfriend is half his age I don't care if she is an adult it is weird, I do think he had something to dow ith it even if he just knew about it , and what has he done to his face shock

YouOldSlag Wed 10-Oct-12 22:52:26

He lost all credibility when he denied being on THAT show with the victim and JS. the very next day his word was disproven with video footage of him on THAT show standing next to his victim and as a guest of the presenter, JS.

He may have had an ounce or two more of sympathy if he hadn't been so blatantly caught out as a liar.

And yeah, it does look odd that his fiancee could be mistaken for his daughter.

Mrsjay Thu 11-Oct-12 19:23:04

on the news tonight there is another 2 celebs been named to investigators it is just horrible I can't get my head round how all this went on nobody did anything , It just gets worse and worse and NOTHING happened to any of them ,sad

Haemadoots Thu 11-Oct-12 19:28:57

sad it's really awful, cant imagine what the victims are going through
